Discussion on: Anybody still working with jQuery?

Our newest project has jQuery on a part on Chrome extension.

Basically the selector engine inside jQuery is more versatile than native query and css selector needed for the project.

"You don't need jQuery?", you do.

Moreover, the library we need has a dependency for jQuery, and we can neither find any alternative nor has time to recreate it since rebuilding it will take several months.

We cannot waste several months just for sake of one part of a 20 part project.

Oh, one part uses jQuery, another React, on same page. Just not the way you would imagine.
